Hotels in the Highlands of Scotland
The Scottish Highlands span a huge area, so choosing where to stay is key to getting the most out of your break here. Start by thinking about which Scottish attractions you’ll head to during your stay before choosing a hotel within easy reach of the places you plan on visiting.
A break in the Scottish Highlands wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Loch Ness. In the centre of the region, this vast lake is famed for its association with the legend of the Loch Ness Monster.
Head up to Inverness, and you could spend a day dolphin spotting. The stunning village of Glencoe is the perfect place to visit if you hope to spot the region’s native red deer.
One of the most famous destinations in the Scottish Highlands is, of course, Ben Nevis. If you’re a confident walker, you’ll love exploring the trials of this incredible mountain. Challenge yourself to climb the three peaks or stick to more sedate trails on the mountain path.
